I dont watch the americanized version of anything because it makes me lose respect for the show. However, i love FLCL and Trinity Blood because they didnt screw it up too bad. they really need to stop putting anime on Toonami and put it all on Adult Swim. There can be some exceptions where Toonami doesnt ruin it such as Dragon Ball and Yu Yu Hakusho.

I think the most destoryed anime in america are Naruto and One Piece, because they are both good, but if you watch a single episode in English, it makes you want to cry and never watch it again.

It really depends on the licensor. ADV usually doesn't touch it at all. Funimation does edit, but they also release uncot versions. Naruto isn't fixed that much except for blood and completely unnecessary scenes like when Naruto and Sasuke kiss eachother, which is in the uncut version anyway. A lot of the time people say that sub is better than dub, but that's usually because that's the first voice they have heard it in. Have you heard the original Inuyahsa? He sounds like he has testicles in his mouth. At the same time, the dubbed Kagome sucks. Mai hime's voices are both pretty good in sub and dub. Among all the licensors though, 4Kids is notorious for fucking things up hence "4kids"

Hahahahaah...true that....Unless you dont want to read..then yeah... can you imagine people who cant afford big TV's and plasma's and have like 12' TV's .....even a 4X' size is kinda small for subtitles I think..idk. Cant pause them when watching TV. Thank goodness for computers and downloading so you can catch up on reading..if your slow..or if they put a lot of content.

As far as dubbing vs subbing. I mean it depends on which you watched first. If you watch dubbing frist the subbing sounds wried and the oppsite is the same. For me either after a eposide or 2 you get used to it and it really doesnt bother me.

I think it's good idea to bring anime from japan to the us. But some animes just suck in america . The voice acting in Naruto on cartoon network made me want to scream. naruto sounds like a 8 year old brat

America has routinely screwed up Anime while doing the best they can to make money off of it. Nothing new. Heck, America has routinely screwed up their own home-grown animation.

Anyone remmeber how they messed up the marketing for Iron Giant?

Haha....if you have a problem with English Dubs....try listening to the arabic....*shivers* its so formal! And...I think they change some of the funniest jokes and turn them into crap -.-'. And at least America has the decency to copy the art of anime in a crappy way....I don't think I've ever seen any original cartoons that are arabic and dont have some 'YOU MUST BE NICE TO EVERYONE AND DO WHATEVER THE LORD SAYS AND ALWAYS LISTEN TO YOUR FAMILIES FOR FAMILIES ARE PERFECT' meaning through-out them. I mean, they once took South Park and made it into something funny in arabic..for the first couple of episodes...then, it all turned to crap....and now, they're making this....*shivers*....cartoon about the life of some family and how the grandfather teaches whoever a lesson or something. DAMN ALL ARABIC TOONS TO HELL! Un-original Ba*tards! I feel ashamed to hold such a title -.-'. *sings 'He's got big balls, She's got big balls, But we've got the biggest balls of them all!'*

Okay.

Here's the deal.

A dub is a dub

A sub is a sub

Like the dub? Watch it
Like the sub? Watch it

DON'T BOTHER WITH THE OTHER ONE.
